Unfortunately there is still a number of things to be completed post handover (and yes it has taken a bit of shine from the occasion) but we really wanted to proceed today so that we can make a start on the long list of things we need to do. The line for lots of other little things not fixed is 'add it to the 90 day check list'. Really??? Apparently it is common practice to handover with things already needing to be addressed at the 90 day check! Hmmm. I don't mean to be a party pooper but...
I realised this afternoon that very soon we will stop referring to it as 'the house' and it will soon be 'home'. I can't wait til that moment!!! The highlight of my afternoon was popping to the supermarket and getting toilet paper, kitchen wipes, hand wash etc to put in my NEW HOUSE!
I also popped to porters paints to look at feature wall colours. We'd like to do one or two before the flooring goes in. Found a colour that is a perfect match for our roller blinds in the rumpus. Bought a test pot so I can check how it looks once the blinds go in Monday.
My air con guy has delayed starting the job from Monday to Thursday. I will email him to confirm that - won't be happy if he pushes it back even further!
LOVE how my kitchen has come up. The house is so echo-y without flooring and furniture - can't wait to see the flooring transform the place.
We are hoping that the weather improves so that we can do a couple of jobs we hope to do on the outside.
More updates soon. Have a good weekend everyone!
